Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today. And it’s about this Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask. This mask promises to calm and soothe skin. The essence contains cucumber juice, sodium hyaluronate and a number of flower, leaf and root extracts.

This mask is supposed to be used on cleansed skin. Simply leave it on for 10-20 minutes. Then massage the leftover essence into your skin. Alrighty, here’s what I think of this mask…

First of all, since the sachet contains A LOT of runny essence, here’s what I’ve done: I enjoyed the sheet mask as recommended. Once it was almost dry, I threw it back into the sachet so it would soak up the remaining essence. Then I enjoyed another sheet mask right away.

But how’s the mask? I think it’s good but not great. I would agree that it’s soothing and calming – but I wouldn’t recommend using it on freshly exfoliated skin because the mask might have the opposite effect. I know because I made this mistake once!

Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single use sheet mask. On the back of the sachet it says that the mask was not tested on animals, and that it’s suitable for vegans. I received a number of these masks as a gift with purchase (Superdrug).

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen

HI there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today – and it’s about this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen. This ultra-thin sheet mask promises to leave skin looking smoother and more radiant.

The mask is easy to use (once you’ve managed to free it from the mask-shaped piece of plastic it’s wrapped around). So… cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. Job done!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I found that it made my skin look smoother. There was no difference in skin radiance (my skin looks quite alright at the moment, so I have no reason to complain right now), but I’ve noticed that this mask plumped up my skin. This was visible on my forehead and around my eyes. Impressive!

Having said this, I won’t repurchase this sheet mask. The piece of plastic that comes with these ultra-thin sheet masks is very annoying, and I don’t like the strong, chemical fragrance. To be fair, the other 2 masks I’ve previously tried and reviewed from this range smelled the same; I haven’t mentioned it before, but now that I’ve used mask number 3, the fragrance registers as unpleasant to me.

Anyhoo, if you’d like to give it a try… Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Peptide

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Peptide. This mask promises to leave your skin looking smoother & feeling nourished. Using this mask is easy – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I don’t like that this ultra-thin sheet mask is wrapped around a mask-shaped piece of plastic. It’s incredibly messy, and it wastes a lot of the essence.

Having said that, this mask is actually very good. It made my skin feel super soft, and I have to say that it made my skin look smooth and glowy too. Based on this, I would recommend it. However, I won’t repurchase it.

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Peptide is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.

By Nature Nourishing & Firming Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this By Nature Nourishing & Firming Face Mask. This face mask contains manuka honey, collagen and rosehip oil, and it promises to soothe, nourish, moisturise and firm the skin.

This sheet mask is supposed to be left on for 10 minutes before you have to rinse it off. OK then… but is this mask any good?

I didn’t expect much from this mask because I’ve previously tried a mask from this brand, and that mask it wasn’t good. However, this mask is actually very good. Even though this is a rinse-off mask, I noticed a firming effect which could be seen and felt for a day (maybe a day and a half). I have a few of these masks, and I’m happy to use them.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask! By Nature Nourishing & Firming Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 single-use face masks. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask. On the back of the sachet it reads that maca root is a skin super food that’s rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. And the mask claims to promote revitalised skin and more skin strength, energy and glow.

This mask is easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then take it off and massage the remaining essence into your skin.

I think this is a great little face mask. It feels deeply hydrating without being greasy or sticky, it has a subtle soapy fragrance, and it feels refreshing and energising. I would also agree that this mask has a plumping effect and that it makes my skin look a little glowy. Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask!

The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 face masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Skin Treats Pomegranate Rejuvenating Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Skin Treats Pomegranate Rejuvenating Sheet Mask. This mask claims to be rich in smoothing and uplifting nutrients, and it claims to revitalise skin.

Using the mask is easy – cleanse your face, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s nothing special. It’s mildly refreshing, and it’s not overly sticky, but that’s already it. I won’t repurchase this mask.

Skin Treats Pomegranate Rejuvenating Sheet Mask is available as a single use face mask for £1. I bought mine at B&M Bargains.

The Crème Shop Clean Up, Skin! Animated Koala Face Mask

Hi there! It’s been a while since I picked up this pack of 3 The Crème Shop Clean Up, Skin! Animated Koala Face Masks. I’ve finally gotten around to use these masks, and here’s what I think.

These masks are regular sheet masks. The instructions are fairly standard – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

This mask promises to purify skin and to make pores appear smaller. On the back of the sachet it literally says “Say goodbye to gunk”. This sounds great!

A look further down on the back of the sachet shows that these masks contain bamboo charcoal powder as well as a number of plant extracts (with lemon fruit extract being one of them). I was really happy to read this because I love charcoal and all things citrus in skin care!

To make a long story short – this is an excellent face mask! Whilst the sheet mask itself is on the heavier side, the overall fit was quite good. I enjoyed the essence very much, and I’m happy to confirm that this mask does indeed shrink pores! On top of this, I was thrilled to find that this mask has a brightening effect, and that it made my skin glow! Truly fantastic stuff!

I would love to repurchase these face masks, and I would recommend them to everyone who wants sheet masks which have a toning and brightening effect. The Crème Shop Clean Up, Skin! Animated Koala Face Masks are available in packs of 3. I paid £4 for 3 masks at TK Maxx.
